 *       -Added check to remove leading % when entering special option.
 *       -Added request to proceed IF Length(areaname)>30.
 *       -Fixed deleterequest in openprefs - quotes, always one missing ;)
 *       -Special %options and pswd options asked in same requester now.
 *       -No longer writes a message if no attach/detach and no option.
 *
 *  v1.1 -Didn't Upper the right variable in PROCESSAREAFILE. Fixed.
 *
 *  v1.0 -Improved area selection, can be started from anywhere!
 *       -Prefs requesters will contain value of last prefs entry.
 *       -If prefs file is invalid, you don't have to quit and restart.
 *       -Add areas from message now works!
 *       -Add areas from an external file!
 *       -Announce asked at time of detach.
 *       -Some more crap removed, fixed or improved.

                 -------------------------------------------
                 READ THE ORIGINAL "AREAFIXMAN.DOC" DOC FILE
                 -------------------------------------------

INSTALLATION:

 Copy AFM/#? to REXX:Spot/AFM. The INSTALL icon will do just that!
 The rexx script you must have spot execute is 'AFManager.spot'

PLEASE NOTE:

 AFManager's editor defaults to "Rexx:Spot/StartCed.spot".  If you wish to
 use something else, you will have to edit the source file.  Look for the
 line 'EDITOR="Rexx:..." in the AFManager.spot file, just make sure your
 editor sticks to the CLI.

WHAT'S NEW (From Areafixman):

 - You can now start AFM from anywhere within SPOT. AFM will remember if
   you started it from a message.

 - Adding areas from a message now works!

   To use this feature, start AFM from a message containing the
   areanames you wish to attach. When prompted for an attach method,
   select MESSAGE. AFM will start your editor so you can add a '~' in
   front of the areanames you wish to attach. Quit the editor to return
   to AFM. The character is configurable, look in the doc file.

 - AFManager can also retrieve areanames from a textfile. Just follow
   the steps outlined above but select FILE when prompted for an
   attach method.

 - When creating a new preference entry, the requesters will default to
   the last entry's content.

 - If you don't have a valid prefs file, AFM will ask you if you wish to
   create a new one right away. No need to quit AFM anymore.

 - AFM now asks if you wish to announce your departure everytime you
   detach an area. The ANNOUNCE line in the prefs file is kept for
   future compatibility.

 - You can add extra %Options for Crystalfix or password options for other
   Areafix programs.
